Jay Inslee has launched a campaign to build public support for his cap-and-tax scheme. He insists that it would raise revenue by making “polluters” pay. Of course, these “polluters” include University of Washington, Washington State University, US Army Joint Base Lewis‐McChord and Naval Base Kitsap. Unfortunately for Inslee, his efforts are not working to his advantage.
It appears that the more people learn of Inslee’s ridiculous cap-and-tax scheme, they realize that the only people who will “pay” are themselves. Hardworking Washington families will see prices rise for everything from the cost of heating their homes to their grocery bills.
On February 17, Inslee posted a link to his cap-and-tax petition on his Facebook page. It has since been removed from the timeline.
We can’t help but wonder if Inslee’s team chose to do so because of the public backlash that ensued. The post received a plethora of negative comments and comparatively little approval. Here’s hoping the public is waking up to the realization that Inslee is too extreme for Washington.

That’s because like all tax & spend liberals, he forget how many times his party has gone to the well. It’s Dry! We have not recovered from the “Great Recession”. As much as they want everyone to belive we have with their new part time employment numbers, social government run programs with endless subsidies paid for by us. 18 Trillion in federal debt, half of which came under the Obama & Democratic controlled government. Now this idiot Inslee wants you the taxpayer to fork over the rest of your paycheck to fund another progressive fantasy. Wake up! We’re tapped!

Yeah, “it’s irresponsible and unpatriotic” when you can blame it on the GOP, it’s “the promise of tomorrow” when the socialist democrats do it. I am moving as soon as we can sell our 10 acres on GreenBluff. Republic of Texas here I come.

Some time back, I sent an email directly to komrade Inslee asking him among other things , “Why did he hate the working poor who need to use cars to commute to jobs so they can support their families?” He has yet to respond. It has never been more obvious to me. the Liberal do-gooder socialist benefactors are going to help us even if it kills us. He either hates the Working stiffs like me or he is so out of touch he makes Marie Antoinette look sensible after all.
